will give mr. obama enough margin to carry the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support from autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people walking through our plant with clipboards taking inventory. they were going to liquidate our facility. that's a fact. so mitt romney can air brush this ll i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the american workers and we're going to invest in this when it wasn't a popular thing to do, absolutely he deserves credit. >> mr. obama needs to persuade more than just his union base that he's the one to continue this success. while the energy boom happened under his watch ohio voters are not all quick to give him the credit. crist of emmitt's oil & gas ved for mr. obama in 200 and says the pside has do a gd job over the last four years. but his business is p
ratcheting up as well. both the art crossing of swing states for those who could decide the election. obama's is sitting three swing states today bad and colorado. tomorrow the obamacare paid focuses on ohio with three separate events saturday dead boy back to wisconsin, iowa and virginia. new hampshire, colorado and ohio the president will stop in wisconsin, iowa and ohio. governor romney was in virginia and then both campaigns are in ohio. both campaigns in iowa on saturday at the same time romney also going to colorado and new hampshire. that is how desperate both are for the undecided vote. just one and then on the sunday schedule for mitt romney. finishing where it began at. new hampshire. the daily tracking poll has governor romney maintaining the 2.lead within a margin of error. also the new abc poll with a one point* lead there in with -- within one-tenth of one percentage point*. at the same time obama was up five points and ultimately won by 6%. 2004 rasmussen project did a victory for president bush and one by the same margin. another poll shows them both died at 36% that same po
this is, by looking at new jersey politics. remembering in new jersey, blue state, president obama carried by a big margin in '08 and will carry it by a big margin next week. christie has to run for re-election in that state next year, 2013. he's fairly well positioned to win but it's never easy being a republican in new jersey. one of the strategies christie has had to appeal to nonrepublican voters in new jersey in the last year is speaking out and publicizing alliances with democrats which creates the image of the bipartisan guy who won't get bogged down in petty republican politics. for instance, he's had this alliance with cory booker, democratic mayor of newark. alliances with democrats in mayor from south jersey. now president obama. like i said for christie to win next year, he has to get a fair number of people voting for barack obama this year. >> let me raise this, though, joy. what struck me, as we deal with this presidential race, is that it was announced today that the president is coming to new jersey tomorrow to see some of the devastation and that governor christie was goi
women. and another fascinating thing obama gets 43% of the wheat vote, higher than in most states. is it all about the auto bailout, smart move politically? >> it is all about the auto bailout. the chevy cruise which is assembled in ohio has ohio parts. down to the seat covers. and everybody knows that the alternative to the auto bailout would have been 13%, 14% unemployment in that state. chris: is there a national positive for him on the auto front or is it just in a couple of states, wisconsin, obviously michigan, those kind of mi western industrial statse? >> coal being part of the state that's doing well. obviously that message will play better to romney there than to obama. but nevertheless, to back out for a second a look at the economy, generally speaking, you have states important swing states where the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. but the recent set of data we see a brightening of consumer attitudes. we see consumer sentiment and surprisingly at a five-year high despite historically high gas prices. despite a lot of the concerns that this is our
to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing act for them and it comes at a time. i have the polls in front of me, erin, i'd like to run over with you. first
in the state of ohio enthusiasm wise? >> well, before the first debate, i thought that obama had almost put this election away. but he blew the first debate. it's hard to say how the hurricane impacted that. froze the race in place. there is less enthusiasm for obama this time for sure. romney has more than mccain had in 2008. >> bret: then in north carolina, what about the machine on both sides? >> we have had 1.4 million early voters. the obama organization never closed up shot from 2008. critical in north carolina. one thing that makes north carolina interesting is that it has the largest african-american population of any of the battleground states. >> bret: last word, craig. machine in wisconsin? >> yeah, well, wisconsin is the highest turn-out state of the battlegrounds and it's very organized, engaged mobilized state as we have been watching in the last two years. i think both sides know how to maximize their vote. it will be a test for democrats, because clearly people are not as energized as they were four years ago. but i think we're going to see a sky high turn-out. it will remin
with the governor in virginia. >> in a three rally swing across battleground state of virginia where he leads by half a point to real clear politics average of recent polls, romney resumed the post hurricane criticism of obama's presidency. >> we need change. for real change we have to take a different course. i will get the economy going from day one we are making changes. >> government reported consumer confidence is at the highest point since obama took office. romney if a new ad mocks the president for resurrecting a proposal on monday rejected by the congressional republicans earlier in year. for a new cabinet level secretary of business. romney slammed him on the stump for it, too. >> find something to suggest it will be better over the next fur years. we game up with an idea that he will create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. >> the obama camp feigned shock at romney's disdain. >> this is an idea that republicans should have rushed to embrace when it was proposed on january 13. proposal for smaller,
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
is in colorado. tomorrow, president obama will be here in ohio. it's another of those battleground states we have talked about so much. cnn is in all of the hot spots. in colorado, we're live. you talked to "mountain mommas"? who are the mountain mommas. >> reporter: in political speak, they're the overcrowd. here, in this battleground state, a third of the registered voters are registered independents. drill that down even pfurther ad one of the key demos? suburban mothers. with the crunch of fall leaves beneath jogging strollers, this group of suburban colorado moms self-described "mountain mommas" hit their first lap chatting about the final leg in the race for president. >> i'm very torn. >> so you're undecided? >> i am definitely undecided. >> reporter: that makes tina the coveted surprise for both parties. >> knocks on my door, mail, to the tv ads. i put a note on my door that said "there are children napping in this house and i guarantee you you woent get my vote if you wake them up by knocking now" they're really bothering me. >> reporter: just listen to what the candidates have said viti
's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some
. the united states pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of the hurricanes. today president obama is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one in
where a state mr. romney is closing the gap and says president obama is up two points in the quinnepiac poll, but there is the average from "real clear politics" survey says mr. romney is leading half a point. then there is ohio. ohio the romney campaign acknowledges it will be a battle down to the very last minute and they have been trailing in some polls. quinnepiac poll has romney down five points but the "real clear politics" average is 2.4 suggesting it is very, very close. the romney campaign arguing that the ground game will put them over the top and they're ready to win this. mr. romney today will unveil his final sprint which will start in ohio. i will have over 100 senators, congressman, governors, state and local officials around the country on stage with him and ready to fan out over the weekend to hit 11 key battleground states. finally, jenna, romney's last event of the campaign takes place monday night in new hampshire, the place where he has a vacation home, nashua the gait city, the "nashua telegraph" which endorsed barack obama in 2008, switched its allegiances and end
for president obama in mitt romney's must-win state of ohio. so we're going to see the candidates spend a lot of time up there in the upper midwest. ohio will get a ton of attention from both candidates. president obama knowing that's a place where he can stop mitt romney cold. so you look at this map right now, and you can continue to have to say president obama has the edge. >> we're hearing that mitt romney is going to pennsylvania. most people would say, why spend time there? i mean that clearly is joe biden's backyard. >> maybe this is the head fake, a bit of a hail mary for the romney campaign. the intriguing thing is the obama campaign is responding with advertising in those states. they're not sending the president there directly, although, bill clinton is spending time in minnesota and joe biden, son of scranton, will be in pennsylvania before this is out. >> very interesting final few days here. rick, you've been a great asset to us throughout the campaign season. we appreciate you joining us. we'll hear from you once again after tuesday, the big day. rick klein again, our senior wa
campaigns shuffling their schedules, president obama, mitt romney. a key battleground state. a state you can bet each one of them wanted to get to. if you look at the new poll coming from your paper. mitt romney trailing the president in that state by four points as opposed to eight. the way it was recently. what do you think the storm has impact as far as key states like this? >> again, normally i would say not much. a race this tight, tightening some. any stop that president or mitt romney makes in a local area gets a lot of coverage. draws a lot of people. can be an organizing tool. having to cancel those stops can make an impact on however many were planning to attend. the buzz, they are here, sending competing messages, in terms of earned media as they call it. it's certainly going to make a difference for them. what is being talked about in virginia is largely the storm and not the campaign speeches. it could make a difference. no way to predict which way that cuts. for romney who wants to close that narrowing gap it could be he doesn't get the face time he needs, for obama, he gets to
that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you are, we're going to go into election day not knowing who is going to win this. the race is simply too close, too many variables and the storm has a lot of new ones. we just can focus on what we see. one thing we see is democrats are playing a little bit more definition than they thought they would. and if you bring those states in to the electoral college picture, minnesota, pennsylvania, maybe michigan, where republican allies of mitt romney are now going on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these states, it's all silly. i think if governor romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, min
to college students. they were really enthusiastic in 2008, helping barack obama win this state, winning the nine electoral votes. this time around they are not as enthusiastic. college students are telling us the reason for that is because they don't think they'll have a job when they graduate from college. so, christine, you have it absolutely right. what it comes down to here in this swing state, it is about jobs and how it's affected people personally. >> kyung lah, the white house just released its statement on the jobs report this morning, saying -- the very first words are more work needs to be done, it provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal. so both the white house and the romney campaign weighing in. >>> the last jobs report, of course, is not without controversy. some even accused the obama administration of cooking the books to bring the unemployment down. misguided accusation, for sure. the method used to calculate the numbers can be confusing. with so much on the line we'll explain exactly how it works and talk to the secretary of labor about t
deal. by the way -- and then obama spends all day today in wisconsin, a state he would have thought would have been locked down by now. just their two schedules alone show you -- you know, how tight this is and that they are both trying to lock down states like florida and wisconsin that should have been in the bag for either one of them aircraft long time ago. i am not arguing arguing with y. look, this is going to be very, very close. anybody who thinks it's in the bag-- >>> i don't think it's in the bag. i am not going to say that. i want people, especially conserve testifies think they are a touchdown behind? and they have to fight hard in the closing days. but two emerging stories here. one is the libya/benghazigate, which has become a real problem. the president's been caught lying. it is not even a point of argument. the president goes in for a photo-op with chris christie and he's back on the campaign trail. he have gas stations shut down. we have looters breaking out. we have people dumpster diving. we have chaoses breaking out with the obama katrina emerging before our eye
tend to go for obama and southern part of the state for romney. so what happen in columbus? >> the changing demographics in columbus, obama won it convincingly in 2008, and george w. bush won it in 2004 with a strong showing in the southeast. it looks as if the romney forces have secured the base in the southeast and going up in the western part of the state and same for president obama in the northeast, and so it is a battle for the center part of the state and 19 counties that make up their part of the state and it is all about the ground game. gretchen, let me say real quick. in 1976, jimmie carter won ohio by 11,200 odd votes and less than one vote for precinct. in 2004 bush won 118,000 and we would have a president carry. that is how close it is right now. >> gretchen: that's how important one vote will be. thank you for your time. >> good to be with you, gretchen. >> gretchen: top lawmakers stepped up questions on who knew what on benghazi. judge napolitano on that next. massive chunk of atlantic city famed boardwalk simply washed away in the storm. we'll have that ne
electronically. president obama declaring the state of new york a disaster area because of sandy's impact, makes the state eligible for extra financial aid. it's closed most new york city tunnels and bridges as well and the mass transit biggest destruction in the 108 years the subway system has been around. will the labor department release the october jobs report scheduled friday morning? at this point the labor market it says it will make every effort to do so. as we continue to see the effects of the storm there is a chance the report could be delayed. the futures have been trading and will continue trading until 9:15. the dow futures down barely by 5 points, nasdaq off by 10.5 points, the s&p up by less than one point. >>> super storm sandy slamming the new jersey coastline hurling record breaking waves and leaving a path of destruction in its wake. the weather channel's jen carfagno joins us with the latest. >> joe, good morning, record breaking waves, record breaking surge, now seeing record breaking river levels. the delaware river set a new record. let me show you where we are with sandy
nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even without this vast field organization. it probably just gave him some extra electoral votes as sort of a cushion back in 2008. >> you say the romney campaign has at least 800 offices -- obama has 800 offices compared to romney's 300. rick wiley says that this is the obama symbol of liberal big government mentality that the obama campaign thinks will put 100 offices in this state we're going to win, but we take a smaller smarter approach, he says, just like we do in government. do you think he has a point? >> well, it's certainly possible that they are just running a more efficient operation, and this is their rationale for why they have so many fewer. obama has more than three times as many field offices in ohio. more than twice as many
in the swing states like in ohio, in florida -- like ohio now, 50% for obama, 46%, romney. you can do that with all of them. and then there's a margin of error. if you have a three or four-point margin of error, you'll say, obama's in the lead but he's within the three-point margin of error, you really haven't told me anything. >> we've told you it's a close race. >> all right. let's talk about the poll of polls. when you factor -- there are different factors, there are different methodologies that go into poll of polls, right? but people -- the people who do the polling don't consider a margin of error but there are different margins of error that go into the poll of polls. what? >> i think the polls of polls or the various websites that track and aggregate the polls are useful. it's a place to look at a lot of polls at once. but those numbers are mixing good polls and bad polls, really large, substantial polls with really small minor polls. it's hard to get much other than a finger in the wind of how things might be blowing at the moment. i think it all -- it's all a part of the sen
air? >> one of their main clients did the got milk ad is? the united states government. we also have cron crony capitaln the ad. they're supporting obama, so liberal democrats will pay them to create ads. i mean, the weird thing about the got milk ad you may have noticed is no one particular firm is being advertised. that's because the government forces milk farmers to pay into this fund. bain capital never did anything this corrupt. >> sean: let me ask you this. ohio romney has pulled into a 2-point lead. michigan is dead even. they're sending bill clinton to minnesota, joe biden to pennsylvania. obviously the obama campaign is on defense. do you really think pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, and ohio, possibly romney votes? >> i'm not sure which one. you have had to check with someone like miki michael baronn that. i'm worried that the romney campaign will steal. i don't care where they're going to send biden. i'm going to wisconsin. five speeches this weeks. i'd look at illinois. democrats are massively unpopular in illinois because of quinn, because of raw rahm he e.
post-bubble recoveries, the united states is ready for a robust revival. this is partly because of the dynamism of the u.s. economy but also because of the timely and intelligent actions of the fed and the obama administration. the next president will reap the rewards of work already done. so it would be the ultimate irony if having strongly criticized every measure that contributed to these positive trends mitt romney ends up presiding over what she would surely call the romney recovery. for more on this, go to cnn/fareed for a link to my "washington post" column. and let's get started. >>> let's get straight to our terrific panel to talk about the economy and obviously a little politics, as well. joe klein is "time's" political economist. amity shlaes is director for the 4% project at the george w. bush institute and author of the forthcoming "coolidge: a biography of america's 30th president." ken rogoff, whom i mentioned, is a professor of economics at harvard university, and amity shlaes is the author of thompson reuters digital and author of "politocrats." become back to b
